This is the link of the news: (tuko.co.ke/192837-suspended-kenyan-homos...ltimillionaires.html)

This piece of news reports that a church was ordered by a court in Nyeri county in Kenya as it suspended three priests on grounds of "homosexuality" but it turned out that it was not true after the discovery process. The church is liable at a total of 7 million Kenyan currency. It seems to be quite ridiculous and unnecessary. First of all, homosexuality in the first place should not be a ground on which labors are dismissed and it should by means be a thing that can be "accused" because it is not a crime at all.

As we all know, LGBT rights in Kenya are retarded as opposed to other regions in the world. Kenya is a country that criminalizes homosexual behaviors and accused people are liable to 5-14 years of imprisonment, which is in violation of the ICCPR and other human rights treaties. Because of the criminalization of homosexuality, it is more impossible for anti-discrimination law to exist. Kenya does not have a constitution that protects LGBT's rights at all, giving rise to these ridiculous news.

Compared to Kenya, LGBT rights are better protected in the U.S. because we have a good legal system that give the greatest importance to the protection of human rights. From the victory of homosexual marriage in 2014 announced by the U.S. Supreme Court, we can corroborate such sound legal system and its importance in the protection of LGBT rights.
